Owner and Franchisee
Hello! My name is Puneet and I have been part of the Building Kidz family as an owner and franchisee for Building Kidz of Folsom since 2021. My educational background consists of a degree with honors in Early Childhood Education and an M.D in Medicine.
My goal with Building Kidz of Folsom is to establish a foundation for a greater society through empowering children with knowledge and confidence and instilling kindness which would make them great global citizens one day. I believe that promoting an environment and culture that focuses on safety well-being, growth, and the development of a whole child through learning practices that are stimulating, engaging playful, and developmentally appropriate is how we lay the path for our children to have a great future.
We are building confidence, commitment, and character while laying the foundation for academic excellence
Hi! My name is Maria and I am the Administrator here at Building Kidz of Folsom!
I have loved teaching since I was in high school and began tutoring kids around the neighborhood. Since then, I have worked in a private tutoring company in the Bay Area, was a teacher’s aide in a preschool, and got my teaching credentials in order to become a full-time teacher! Being able to help a child navigate such important developmental milestones using education, exploration, and play is a true gift. I am excited to continue helping your little ones learn and grow!
Hi! My name is Casondra and I am the 3’s teacher here at Building Kidz of Folsom!
I first joined Building Kidz as a performing arts teacher. I loved teaching at each of the Building Kidz centers and knew that I wanted to be a teacher here full-time! I graduated with a B.A in Dance with Minors in Child Development and Psychology from Mills College! I continued my studies at Mills and received a Masters of Arts in Dance where I was able to pursue my passion and research more of the benefits that children receive with a performing arts-integrated education. I am excited to share my passion and experience with each of the children as they grow and learn through creativity and play. I know I will learn just as much from them as well.
Hello! My name is Debbie and I am the 5’s teacher here at Building Kidz of Folsom!
I have been teaching preschool for over 25 years. I graduated from Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo with an A.A degree in ECE. I have been married for 25 years and we have an (almost) 20-year-old son, Mitchell. We also have a 5-year-old cat named Sully (or whom Mitch calls Sullivan).
I have been with Building Kidz since they began here in the Sacramento area in 2018. I love teaching the 5’s, getting them ready for kindergarten, watching them learn to write sentences, add and subtract numbers, and all the art projects we do throughout the year. I am thrilled that you entrusted the care of your child with me so they can grow emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. I love working with children. They make me laugh with their stories. I love watching my students grow and learn every day.
Hi! My name is Eden and I am the 4’s teacher here at Building Kidz of Folsom!
I have been working with children for about six years now, but I’ve always enjoyed being around kids. This is my first job at a preschool center, and I have loved every second of it. Working with children has always been something I knew I wanted to do at a young age. I first went to school to be a pediatric nurse, but I changed directions because I wanted to see kids at their best and watch them grow. I am Disney-obsessed and I’m always ready to sing a good Disney song. I’m so excited to help your child grow, along with myself.
Hello, my name is Sveta and I am the 2’s teacher here at Building Kidz of Folsom!
I am a mother of two beautiful girls, and I love being around kids! I am a Graduate of Pedagogics and have honors in Early Childhood Education. I have experience with teaching at Kyiv International University in the Department of Foreign languages. I have worked at Building Kidz Worldwide school in Gurgaon, and with Building Kidz non-profit school at Sai-dham in India. I love to be a part of a child’s developmental journey, giving equal importance to the physical, emotional, social, cognitive, and academic domains of development. I love animated movies and watching Sinchan is my favorite pass time.
